Learning from the Past and Present to Reshape the Future of Business 

The global pandemic has created unthinkable circumstances for business and for society. But one constant as we work through the business challenges spawned by this international crisis is the empathetic leadership that technology executives are demonstrating to their teams to help keep them safe, secure and engaged. The key for CIOs, CISOs and other technology executives to drive success for their companies is to draw from their past and current experiences in the current crisis and to apply a fresh mindset in leading the business forward into a brighter future with courage and compassion. 

In this Digital Summit, top technology executives will share their advice on the roles that CIOs and tech leaders can play in driving innovation, reshaping the business and fashioning the future of work.

You’ll also discover:

  • Successful approaches to leading authentically to strengthen employee engagement and motivation
  • Recommendations for driving innovation and business transformation with the C-suite
  • The challenges posed by a hybrid workforce model, along with fresh ideas on how to address them
  • How to keep employees inspired and feeling safe and secure to deliver positive business outcomes

"As an attendee of the HMG Virtual Summit I enjoyed the fact that it was fast moving, insightful and presented a variety of speakers, both local and non-local. The duration was just right and did not require tying up an entire day. I thought the content and format was absolutely terrific!"
